My New Coat

I remember the day I got my first coat—my first real coat—not some bulky ski wear or puff ball but like a real, adult, grown-up coat. The thing was double-breasted, nice thick lapels, and had big round serious buttons on it that weren't even there to do ...

The sound of a toilet flushing.



FRED and JOHN are sitting in the sand, staring out into the ocean.

Can you imagine it, all the shit that's out there?

Don't know what to make of this... but I wrote it and some people seem like it.

As promised in my last post I would turn my artistic attentions to felines.


The normal, light, lush orange hair, tainted with thin, dark, black streaks that pepper its otherwise spotless fur coat. You look down at it thinking, "This is a pretty cute cat," but can't help but ...

The Happy Puzzle

Today I will be talking about a very revolutionary piece of art I recently drew. I call it the Happy Puzzle.


It's a symbol of a better tomorrow. The pieces are the next generation, our kids, working together to build the future. Each of them is an instrumental piece ...
